Banjos and Donuts and Friends, Oh my!

Last night’s sessions at The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society were a joy. You missed some cool workshops, Jack Scrimshaw not only singing (the dude has a voice) an Irish song, but Bad Bad Leroy Brown was sung in Spanish by my brother Carlos and Higor from Brazil sang Red River Valley in Portuguese! So many songs were sung, questions asked and ideas thrown around that it would be hard to recall everything in detail – and that is just how it should be.

If you missed it, come next week.

If you are too shy to attend, give Dear Old Dad a call. Really. He’ll coax you in.

You see, TWNBADMS is not a forum, jam or anything like that. We are simply folk musicians sharing our love of the craft. All are welcome. Everyone is a teacher and a student. Come out and play!

Eastbound and Wednesday!

Join us for the next gathering of The Wednesday Night Banjo and Dount Marching Society!

This week’s jam-starter song is Eastbound and Down, but bring your songs to share and questions to ask!

About The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society

The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society is a combination jam session, workshop, bull session, and general celebration of music.

The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society began in Wayne, Pa at Kitt Foster’s house. Patrick met Paul the Beatnik at the Radnor Library and convinced him to give his father a frailing banjo lesson in exchange for lunch at the family’s hoagie shop. The initial meeting led to a weekly session. That led to a rag-tag group slowly forming and becoming an extended family over the years.

Paul was a Washington Square beatnik with ties to musicians like Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, and Rambin’ Jack Elliott. Paul wanted us all to learn not only to play but also to teach and lead a jam.

We will be continuing that tradition as we revive The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society. We want an open exchange of ideas that ignores the nonsense surrounding genres and instruments.

You must be a musician to join The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society. Meetings are not open to an audience. We do not record meetings. These rules are in place to ensure that musicians of every level can share music, tips, and stories in a safe, non-judgmental, non-confrontational, and non-commercial space.

Any musician can join and take part in meetings of The Wednesday Night Banjo and Donut Marching Society. Music is a universal language. There are only twelve notes.

We go round-robin in each meeting. Every musician can call a song, ask a question, or offer a pointer.
